"Defending coastal facilities with the sole use of radars or cameras generates a security hole, because radio and light waves do not perform well under water," said Ogawa. Want to read more? For analysis on this article and access to all our insight ...
Infrared, if you don't know, is a method in which the camera sensor is modified to read infrared light waves and block out other colors of the spectrum.

On the same day, I.B.M. and G.E. announced the same laser light discovery, an invention used to communicate by light waves.
light waves scattering off a rotating black hole can bounce off with more energy than they came in with, by sapping some of the black hole's rotational energy.
By way of analogy, Soljacic points out that even an ordinary eyeglass lens carries out a complex calculation (the so-called Fourier transform) on the light waves that pass through it. The way light beams carry out computations in the new photonic chips ...
Methyl isocyanate was discovered in IRAS 16293-2422 by detecting the light waves emitted by the protostar. This collection of light waves is like a fingerprint; each chemical has its own unique set, which allows Astronomers the ability to determine the ...

DHM is distinct from other types of microscopy because it does not recreate a projected image of the specimen but instead produces a digital hologram from the light waves that have passed by the specimen. A numerical reconstruction algorithm in a ...
optomechanical devices simultaneously confine mechanical waves and light waves to allow interaction between them. Wiederhecker and his group succeeded in overcoming this size limitation with reference to light propagation by developing silicon disks ...
What's more, different light waves create different responses in the body. Blue light (or short-wave light) suppresses melatonin, a hormone that rises during the mid-to-late evening, encouraging sleep.
Optomechanical devices simultaneously confine light waves and mechanical waves to permit interaction between them. To overcome this size limitation with regard to light propagation, Wiederhecker and his group developed silicon disks with a diameter of ...
For example, visible light waves travel at extremely high frequencies of around 430-750 trillion hertz (terahertz, THz), with their specific frequencies determining the colours we see.
It's the color of the Emerald Isle, the hue of sickness and envy, and a shade associated with grotesque monsters. And its most universal interpretation conjures imagery of nature, a vibrant symbol of the environmental movement and healthy living.
A Switch for Light Wave electronics. May 23, 2016 - light waves might be able to drive future transistors. The electromagnetic waves of light oscillate approximately one million times in a billionth of a second, hence with petahertz frequencies.
Waves, whether they are water waves or light waves, interact via interference: sometimes two waves reach a peak at the same time and place and the result is a higher wave, but it is also possible that a peak of one wave meets the trough of another ...
The field of imaging objects through materials, from layers of paint to eggshells and even mouse skulls, has made great strides in the last decade.
Caltech provides an analogy to light waves in order to understand dispersion in this context, noting in its press release that light waves of different wavelengths bend differently when passing from one medium into another, hence the Pink Floyd prism ...
When objects pass within the wavelength of these sensors, the light waves detect those objects and reflect them back to the sensors.

The electronic field moves in complex trajectories as a light pulse propagates. Credit: Giuseppe Sansone. For the first time, an international research team under the direction of Prof.
Here the light waves/rays travelling from different directions strike the boundary or the surface layer that is separating the two media namely the liquid and surrounding air at different angles called angles of incidence.
Afterward, those mice exposed to the 8Hz light waves proved to be relatively calm in behavioural tests: they lingered in lighted portions of a special cage, while their twitchier counterparts ran for the shadows.
May 2017 VIENNA, May 26, 2017 - In a variation of the magneto-optical effect, special materials called "topological insulators" (TI) demonstrated the ability to switch the direction of a light wave in clearly defined quantum leaps rather than continually.
In January 2017, news first broke of the plans for redeveloping Washington, D.C.'s vacant Franklin school, which has been vacant since 2008.
As Wi-Fi transmits signals through walls to connect users to the online realm, who knew that their emitted electromagnetic light waves could also generate holographic images? scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) found a way to ...
fiber-optic networks are composed of wires whose diameter ranges in the micrometer scale, which allows for light waves of approximately one micrometer passing through.
Measured for the first time: Direction of light waves changed by quantum effect. The 'quantized magneto-electric effect' has been demonstrated for the first time in topological insulators at TU Wien, which is set to open up new and highly accurate ...
Sound or light waves can tug in small particles under carefully controlled conditions. There are also other types of beams that have waves that can scatter forward off of a particle.
These detectors are a series of several-kilometer-long L-shaped buildings that measure gravitational waves passing through Earth as tiny differences in the distance traveled by two laser beams' light waves. scientists have spotted gravitational waves ...
Observing an eclipse also opens the door to study radiation, light waves, space travel, black holes and telescopes. Buckner shared that the sun is approximately 4.6 billion years old and halfway through its life cycle.
The international team used data from the CLASP spectropolarimeter, an instrument which provides detailed wavelength (color) and polarization (orientation of the light waves) information for light passing through a thin slit. The researchers discovered ...
Holograms have fascinated onlookers for over half a century. But the devices for producing these holographic images have been relatively bulky contraptions, forced into their large size in part by the wavelengths of light that are necessary to generate ...
Sound or light waves can pull small particles under carefully controlled conditions. For certain types of beams, waves can scatter forward off of a particle, pushing the particle back toward the source of the beam due to the law of conservation of ...
Mice do not, so far as we know, practice meditation. But in order to study how that activity affects human brains at the cellular level, researchers at the University of Oregon managed to put murine brains into a somewhat equivalent state.
... experts suggest getting up and doing something else. That might mean making a soothing hot drink or reading a book on the sofa - just don't watch TV or look at your phone or computer, as the blue light waves emitted by such devices can keep you awake.
The new system is called "memory driven computing" and uses light waves to transmit data instead of electrical impulses traveling over silicon, bypassing what engineers say is an obstacle to boosting computing speeds.
Because light waves are directional - unlike ZigBee, Wi-Fi, bluetooth and other omnidirectional technologies - the photocell, when placed beneath a fixture, will capture data about that specific fixture.
Instead, Atash's stoic "Punk Buddha" sculptures sit cloaked in vibrant, even flamboyant, colorful robes, which sparkle with upwards of 20,000 Swarovski crystals.
... which, rather than reflecting particular wavelengths of light and absorbing all the others, as normal pigment does, contains flakes of mica that either reflect the labeled color or let light waves pass through to another layer, where they bounce ...
A team of physicists have outlined a means of making tractor beams to push and pull objects at a distance using "matter waves", those strange analogues of light waves that underlie quantum mechanics. Tractor beams, staple tools of science fiction for ...
Rather than detecting reflected light waves to see objects, bats send out ultrasound waves and use the reflected sound to work out where things are.
These crystals exploit the Bragg scattering of light waves. This creates a band gap that forbids certain wavelengths of light from passing through.
Although it might seem hard to believe, many of the colours of the rainbow have not been created or observed in real life. So to create a new shade, a completely new material has to be discovered that refracts and absorb light waves in an entirely new ...
Does adding a little bit of water suddenly "wake up" the dormant chlorophyll in the grass, which starts the absorption of blue and red light, quickly transmitting only green light waves to our visible eye? I can imagine the sound of the chlorophyll ...
Each ALMA antenna surface has been painstakingly hand-tuned to accurately reflect light waves as tiny as 400 micrometers long - that's about the length a human hair grows in a day.
One of the cornerstones of the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative was the establishment of nanotechnology research facilities that would be available to outside users.
These researchers have essentially heard a noise (in this case the radio waves, which are actually light waves), turned around to see what made the noise, and have seen nothing in 22 different places.
The hologram works by capturing not the image of an object, as received at a sensor or set of sensors, but by capturing the wave front of light waves that emerge from the object. If the same wave front is then created again, there is no way any sensor ...
